February 7, 2024 At approximately 5:30PM Mercer County Schools’ Administration received notification of a potential threat involving a student allegedly having a weapon on a bus this afternoon. An investigation immediately began and the student has been identified with the cooperation of School Administration, Mercer County Schools Safety Coordinator Sergeant Clemons and the West Virginia State Police. The West Virginia State Police have confirmed the threat to be unsubstantiated. Mercer County Schools will operate on a regular schedule tomorrow. Out of an abundance of caution, you may notice an increased police presence at our Bluefield High School campus. We extend our sincere gratitude for those who have the courage to step forward and report things such as this. Statement Released on February 7, 2024 at 9:30pm Edward T. Toman, Superintendent
